Volta Ciclista a Catalunya
Stage 3: Girona to Girona - Stage Details

Colombian Esteban Chaves has finished amongst the second group on the road in his ‘home’ town of Girona on the third stage of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya this afternoon.

Caught on the wrong side of a crash on a descent 40km from the finish, Chaves’ group recovered well to minimise the damage, crossing the line 25seconds in arrears of stage winner Domenico Pozzovivo (Ag2r La Mondiale) and 22seconds behind a select group of general classification contenders.

“The guys were doing a good job today and we were just unfortunate to be behind a crash that caused the initial split,” sport director Dave McPartland said.
